The Neckwarmer.

At our house one of the most essential pieces of winter gear is the neckwarmer. There is something about neckwarmers that just warm you body through and through. My kids fight over who has whose neckwarmer "that ones' mine, no it's not, yours is over there, no I had the black one" blah blah's not like I don't have a hundred more in the basement!

But really, I have been known to be possessive over my neckwarmer, so I can sort of understand them. 

The cool thing is everyone has their favourite style. Bobby likes the classic double thick neckwarmer, while Thom prefers the new long style. I wear a long one, but I fold it over, not quite in half, so it's sort of a cross over neckwarmer.

My intention is important, as it affects many other choices: type of shoes, clothing, walking poles, water, binoculars, camera etc.

 After stopping for the dogs to poop and stopping to change Jett’s diaper (twice) we were off!! We walked through a sunny meadow, climbed up the frozen cascades and returned via a side trail that skirted the riverbank. Bliss.
